Frequently Asked Questions

When does the course start and finish?
The course starts now and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish.
How long do I have access to the course?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.
Do I have to have an Apple Pencil?
No, procreate will work with a stylus or even a finger, however you will be far happier with the precision and pressure sensitivity of an Apple Pencil.
How do I know if my iPad is compatible
All currently available iPads are compatible, however you can check your generation against the procreate FAQ page here:
How much memory does my iPad need to run Procreate?
The Procreate app does not use much memory, but it varies depending on how much saved work you have. The app uses 600 MB to operate. My personal saved projects take up 15 GB. The smallest iPad available today is 64 GB. More detailed projects, like paintings, will need a lot more storage.
Will I be charged tax for a digital class? Why?
US and global laws are changing quickly and vary state by state with regards to sales tax on digital items. The Teachable paying platform will automatically charge the appropriate tax as it applies to an individual state's laws or country tax code. Allowing a large platform like teachable to handle changing tax laws keeps me from needing to file in multiple states or be exposed to audit.
